Apollo Moon and is slated to revolutionize the transportation sector by providing dependable long-term robotaxi ride-hailing services. Lower production cost will facilitate greater scalability and commercialization of fully autonomous ride-hailing services in China.
Baidu and ARCFOX penned a strategic cooperation agreement to roll out a fleet of 1,000 Apollo Moon robotaxis in three years. Baidu Apollo Moon uses the ANP-Robotaxi architecture to reduce the weight of autonomous vehicle kits while sharing intelligent driving vehicle data to create a closed-loop information ecosystem. These capabilities, customized LiDAR and corresponding unmanned redundancy functions will enable fully driverless autonomy.
